This yacht can accommodate a total of 26 guests in its cabins. It has a honeymoon suite, two queen-bed cabins and two twin bed cabins on the main deck. There are eight more twin bed cabins on the lower deck. All the rooms are comfortable enough to make every passenger’s tour relaxing and unforgettable. All rooms have air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. The saloon is spacious enough for guests to watch the latest movies. There is a large library of movies, magazines, fish books, novels and games for kids. Also, this boat has a satellite phone and free Wi-Fi to communicate with friends and family back home. There is a comfortable open area that also has a covered part in front of the saloon, where guests can rest between the dives. There is a huge sun deck that provides sunseekers enough space for sunbathing and a shaded area as well to see the ocean view while drinking a cup of coffee.
There is a buffet style meal on board served with a variety of cuisines. The menus prepared by the chef are served with local, Italian and international food. There are four meals a day including snacks. The crew will serve complimentary beverages and snacks on board. Guests may also enjoy homemade biscuits and toasts free of charge. Spirits and beer are available for a fee. The buffet pre-meal begins with the arrival of passengers on board. We recommend guests to inform booking agents for other dietary restrictions.
There is adequate space for the dive deck and dive platform to ensure enough space for the divers and their underwater journey. Non-divers may also enjoy snorkeling. There are two-handheld showers for rinsing after every dive. There is a total of 20 dives including night dives for the whole journey. Nitrox is available on board, and diving gear rental is available once booked and reserved in advance. The dive guides are professional and well-trained to guide divers all day long.
Sudan is well-known to have a rich diversity of marine life. It offers untouched coral reefs and vast numbers of schooling fish, moray eels and sea turtles. There are large pelagic species such as reef sharks, mantas and hammerheads. May to October is the rainy season, while November to June is the best time to visit and to have better visibility.
The Tiran Islands is a scuba divers dream that links the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba. The Marine Reserve and Ras Mohammed National Park is a magnificent place to enjoy the natural beauty underwater. There are some sites with fast currents and steep walls. Both day and night dives are great to experience as different marine life comes out once the sun goes down.
